Title: We're back with a bang!
Post by: Turkey on April 02, 2013, 06:05:24 PM UTC
OK time to update the community with some SR news! Sorry for the long post but it has been a while  :red: - Post on LFS forum (https://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?p=1789623#post1789623)

As most of you know, we have been very inactive (especially me) since before our 10th Birthday (October 2012), so first things first, we would like to thank everyone for all their support and friendship over the last 10 years! We have had many people in the team over the time we have been going and it has been great to see them do well in their new teams after leaving us. We hope everyone who left us, left on good terms and with good impressions of the team. We would like to say thanks for being with us :) Also I would personally like to thank everyone who has stayed with us, even with us being inactive lately.

With the demise of 500 servers, we lost our website and game servers, but we have managed to get the site back (thanks to Tongey and KayJay) and cargame.nl have kindly loaned us a server to practise on, thanks Dave!

With the site back, it has given me the motivation to try to get the team back to being an active team in the LFS community, so here's what has happened in March -

We lost some old SR racers whilst being offline, so first of all welcome back to our old friends listed here - it is great to see you back, you were all missed  :thup:

[SR] DOC
[SR] Frank
[SR] Putz
[SR] Iceman

We have also been recruiting new drivers, so we would like to announce these new signings with some comments written by them when they joined -

Our first signing is [SR] Riddick

About Charlie “Riddick” Guerra.
Riddick is 36 years old and comes  from (Chile/Germany), He moved to Sweden since he was 8 years old with  his parents and sister. His free time he trains Taekwondo and has been  one of the best districts in Sweden/Stockholm in TKD, but unfortunately, he had to put it on the side. He is married to his Swedish and  beautiful wife, and is also a proud father of a daughter. He can not  live without music like Raunchy, Disturbed, Papa Roach...etc. he likes almost everything. Last but not least, he has a limited understanding of English so be nice to him ^^
-------
Our next signing is [SR] A.Valta

Little bit about me, Antti "n gin" Valta. Im 15 years old guy from  Pielavesi, Eastern Finland. At the moment i am running the ninth grade, but next year i will go to vocational school. I started LFS in  2010,when my best friend told about this racing game. I was demo driver  about 1 year, but after that i bought wheel (DFGT) and s2 license. I  started to drive endurance races last year, at first just for fun.
Im interested everything what you can drive especially cars and  bikes.Some favorite bands are: Metallica,Iron Maiden,Megadeth,Rammstein  etc... And i am really big F1 Fan.  What i do when i have free time? - Well, i'm spending time with my friends,  surfing the net, driving my car etc. or playing LFS (sometimes playing PS3)
------
Next up is [SR] Litmanen

Hello guys!
It's nice to meet you all and I'm really happy to join this team.
Something  about me, I'm 21 years old electrician/automation installer and I live  in Lapinlahti, Finland. I've been racing a lot of my spare time now but  of course spending time with my friends too. I've played LFS since 2009  but I had about 2 years "break" when I didn't play at all because all  kind of college courses and had to be the whole year of 2012 in the  army. Now I'm back with a new computer and wheel. (Made a lot of change with times )
Good to be here and hope to see you online soon!
--------
Next to join was our old friends from the AMT team, first [SR] Sermilan

Hi guys, my real name is Milan Radonjic and I've been LFSing for 6 years now. I  live in NiÅ¡, Serbia. I love racing and racing sims. I tried quite a few racing games/sims, but when stumbled upon LFS, got hooked to the day :).  Not only that I've found it realistic, but all the things surrounding  it (teams, leagues, people...) also fascinated me. In the first couple  of years, I tried to be as competitive as I could, but then too much  work, then the loss of it and evermore demanding son just got the better  of me. Nowadays, I race mostly for fun.
-----
Next was [SR] Vule, also from AMT

Hi friends, my name is Mladen Vukicevic, friends call me Vule. I live in Paracin in the heart of Serbia.

The  SR team have come because of good cooperation and good racing. A large reason for joining SR is the similarity with the inscription in my former race car - "Sljivovica Racing - TM"  :P
-----
Next was [SR] Ice, aka Elliot Shaw, another old friend and known to the communty as Ice! Quick in the FOX and anything else we put him in :)
-----
Last but not least is [SR] J. Rantala

Hello, my name is Joona "CardsetCrazy" Rantala. I started lfs in summer  2009 and played two weeks demo and then i quit and started again with  new user in summer 2010. I'm 15 years old for Kouvola, Finland and im in  9th grade and I'll go to the High School next year. I like to drive  with my 50cc moped with friends, watch some motorsports and football. I  support Manchester United. My favourite artists are E-dubble and Hoodie  Allen and favourite TV-series is Blue Mountain State at the moment. When  I dont want to play LFS, I usually play Call of Duties or watch some  Netflix in PS3. My favourite cars in LFS are FZ2, XR2 and XRG, I hate driving FWD :P I'm driving with Logitech G27.

We hope with these recent signings and with the whole team being motivated we can start to compete again in leagues and of course have great races with you in public servers!

Awesome Jason!

Really happy to see you have found new motivations to bring the team back!
I always had lots of respect for you and your team (secretly wanted to join the team 4 years ago) and lfs wasn't the same without you.
I sincerely hope you can come back to league racing asap, we've missed SR for too long there.
If I can be of any help to speed up your recovery, just give me a ring, I'll be happy to!

Good luck to the old and new members, may the force be with you all! :cheers:

The Big Bang encouraged me to dust off the wheel and fire up LFS again! I'm so glad it happened as I didn't realise how much I was getting out of touch! (Please no comments on why my wrists hurt so much) :p

Good to see the new and old guys here again!
